This is a nice hotel with good facilities. The staff were lovely without exception and the place was spotlessly clean. My single room was small but adequate, as was the shower room.However it was very hot and although the fan helped a lot, my window opened onto the eternally busy Rokin and the noise was too much to allow sleep (the fact that it was world cup final weekend which Netherlands happened to be in added to the noise!) However none of this was anyone's fault. My companion was allocated a twin room in the basement which was cooler and a little quieter although he had to put up with the constant noise of people walking around the foyer above him. I have come to accept that hotel rooms in the Netherlands do not have kettles but the cupboard which should have contained the fridge did not. This would have been a huge benefit.
Breakfast was the usual Dutch hotel fayre of cheeses, meats, hot bacon and eggs etc. and was good as was the excellent coffee with a huge pot of piping hot milk for the koffie verkeerd. All in all a good hotel in a good location for shopping and sight seeing but don't expect to sleep much if you have a room at the front.
Finally, the stairs in the hotel are treacherously(and typically) narrow, steep and spiral so stick to the lift, assuming you have managed up the front steps in the first place. The breakfast room is in the basement with no lift access so be aware of this if arthritis or vertigo are issues for you!
